Greetings from Dr. Brenda,  Attending advanced training on adrenal & thyroid today in Tampa, Florida.  Stress affects our endocrine wellness, which depletes our body from stressors:  environmental, psychosocial, physiological, and biological.  Coping with stress is continual and dynamic.  The mind (brain), endocrine system, nervous system, and immune system are constantly communicating with each other….trying to adjust to the complexity of our daily lives. Acupuncture, nutritional supplements & tonics, and essential oils are tools to help our bodies remain in homeostasis.  We are constantly balancing our cortisol and adrenal hormones as our world sends us more and more to deal with…WOW!  Reviewing the actions and uses of Standard Process Nutritionals, whole food vitamins, cultivated in Palmyra, Wisconsin on organic farms.  Have visited this company twice over the years and have always been impressed by the science and ethics of this company.
